Total Co Host of ERTC Ask the Experts

After discussions with our refining stakeholders and co-host, Total, we have chosen to postpone the 4th edition of ERTC: Ask the Experts to 15 – 17 June 2021 in Antwerp, Belgium.

The health and safety of our network is our top priority and we believe that next year will be the perfect time to regather with our unique interactive sessions, industry experts, outdoor activities and drinks reception. You will still also have the opportunity to visit Total’s biggest refinery on the continent and Europe’s third largest.

To keep updated on the 2021 plans, just register your interest by pressing the button below or contact the team.

Unique Formats

Thanks to our extensive refining network at the World Refining Association, we have been able to collate the pressing onsite issues faced by Europe’s process engineers. With their questions to hand, we are looking for experts from across the globe to answer their problems in four exciting formats.

Experts in Action

These are short, sharp and snappy demonstrations highlighting the latest technology or solution with practical insight and explanation to application in a refinery.

You can present in a variety of ways but the main rule is that text and PowerPoints are banned.

Expert Q+A Panels

Your panel will be made up of both refiners and technology providers. Questions will be posed to you through the live interactive app Sli.do and live from the floor with our chuckable microphone. The moderator will guide the discussion and direct the specific questions for you to answer.

Be prepared to apply your practical refining knowledge to answer questions that will come from a wide range of themes.

Technical Workshops & Roundtables

Some problems cannot be resolved with a simple answer, which is why we have dedicated extended workshops and roundtables to get to the bottom of the issue. This allows for in-depth conversations to gauge engineer opinions and cross-industry knowledge sharing which cannot be achieved back in the office.

Topics

ERTC: Ask the Experts is the chance to collaborate directly with process engineers of Europe’s major refineries. The industry is at a crossroads and refiners are on the hunt for their burning technical questions to be answered. This is the opportunity for technology and solution providers with extensive experience in the field to build relationships with new customers with your latest solutions.

Can you offer your expertise and solutions to our topics? Get in touch with Sandil Sanmugam on [email protected] or +44 207 384 7744.

Who attends ERTC Ask the Experts?

Total Antwerp Refinery Visit

After more than five years of work and capital expenditure of more than €1 billion, Antwerp — Total’s largest refining and petrochemicals complex in Europe — has completed its transformation. The complex is composed of a refinery that processes 338,000 barrels of crude oil per day, apetrochemical plant that manufactures base chemicals and a facility that produces polymers. It has been completely reorganized to meet three objectives: respond to market demand by manufacturing more light products that meet the strictest environmental standards, make the complex more flexible so it can use the most cost-advantaged feedstocks available and increase synergies between refining and petrochemicals.

With its 1,700 employees, Antwerp is poised to become one of Total’s most competitive complexes.
